Front-end to svnsyncing a remote svn repo
Note: Plugin seems to be incompatible with Trac v1.0.
Trac does not provide an out-of-the-box solution for svn repositories that don't reside on the same server as Trac. SvnsyncPlugin provides a front-end to aid in the creation of a svnsync-ed repository locally. This requires svn 1.4 to be installed locally, including the svnsync command on the $PATH.
This plugin is still a beta and is not as automated as it could be. Also, svnsync is not 100% reliable: for instance, it does not work as expected on edgewall's repositories.
If you have any issues, create a new ticket.

General instructions on installing Trac plugins can be found on the TracPlugins page.
To use this plugin, you must make some changes to the
trac.ini file of your Trac project. First, enable the plugin:
[components] svnsyncplugin.* = enabled
Make sure your repository type is set to
[trac] repository_dir = /path/to/directory repository_type = svnsync
repository_dir is used as the destination directory for the sync. You must also give the repository_url you wish to sync to:
[svn] repository_url = http://yoursvnserver.org/svn
The repository will be synced on each request. The first sync (to get all past versions) will take some time. You can get around this by using the svnsync.py script (UNIX syntax shown):
`python -c 'import svnsyncplugin, os; print os.path.dirname(svnsyncplugin.__file__)'`/svnsync.py --directory /path/to/directory --repository http://yoursvnserver.org/svn
